Enfants des parcs, gamins des plages
Children in parks, kids on beaches
Le vent menace les châteaux de sable façonnés de mes doigts
The wind threatens sand castles shaped by my fingers
Le temps n'épargne personne hélas
Time saves nobody alas
Les années passent, l'écho s'évade sur la Dune du Pyla
The years pass, the echo escapes from the the Dune of Pyla
Au gré des saisons, des photomatons,
Following the seasons, the photo booths,
Je m'abandonne à ces lueurs d'autrefois
I abandon myself to these glimmers of yesteryear
Au gré des saisons, des décisions, je m'abandonne
Following the seasons, the decisions, I abandon myself
Quand les souvenirs s'emmêlent, les larmes me viennent,
When memories get tangled, tears come to me,
Et le chant des sirènes me replonge en hiver
And the siren song plunges me back into winter
Oh mélancolie cruelle, harmonie fluette, euphorie solitaire
Oh cruel melancholy, delicate harmony, solitary euphoria
Combien de farces, combien de frasques
How many pranks, how many mischiefs
Combien de traces, combien de masques avons-nous laissé -bas ?
How many traces, how many masks did we leave there?
Poser les armes, prendre le large
Laying down weapons, putting out into the deep
Trouver le calme dans ce vacarme avant que je ne m'y noie
Finding calm in this din before I drown
Au gré des saisons, des photomatons,
Following the seasons, the photo booths,
Je m'abandonne à ces lueurs d'autrefois
I abandon myself to these glimmers of yesteryear
Au gré des saisons, des décisions, je m'abandonne
Following the seasons, the decisions, I abandon myself
Quand les souvenirs s'emmêlent, les larmes me viennent,
When memories get tangled, tears come to me,
Et le chant des sirènes me replonge en hiver
And the siren song plunges me back into winter
Oh mélancolie cruelle, harmonie fluette, euphorie solitaire
Oh cruel melancholy, delicate harmony, solitary euphoria
Quand les souvenirs s'emmêlent, les larmes me viennent,
When memories get tangled, tears come to me,
Et le chant des sirènes me replonge en hiver
And the siren song plunges me back into winter
Oh mélancolie cruelle, harmonie fluette, euphorie solitaire
Oh cruel melancholy, delicate harmony, solitary euphoria
Quand les souvenirs s'emmêlent, les larmes me viennent,
When memories get tangled, tears come to me,
Et le chant des sirènes me replonge en hiver
And the siren song plunges me back into winter
Oh mélancolie cruelle, harmonie fluette, euphorie solitaire
Oh cruel melancholy, delicate harmony, solitary euphoria
